Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie—step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Pauline Baynes has produced hundreds of wonderful illustrations for the seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia. In 1968 she was awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for her outstanding contribution to children's literature.

This book is a great book full of imagination. Although the first chapter is a little boring, once you read the second chapter you won't be able to put it down. This book was written by an author (C.S. Lewis) from England, so there will be a few unfamiliar words if your not from that area. This book is #2 of the series, but if you go by the order that they were written this book would be the first. There is a total of seven books in the series. These books are The Magician's Nephew, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. That was my review of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

This is a well written classic that is entertaining, easy to follow, and has lovely color illustrations. I reccomend this book to everyone and especially anyone who enjoyed "Half Magic". (Also: to the person who did not have colored pictures; maybe you dont have a nook color but it worked fine for me. To the person who thought that this was abridged; I'm sure it is not, so have a please give a reason for why you think it is that way so we can understand you better.) I hope this helped, and if it did, please click the "yes" button for if this was helpful. :)

I LOVE Chronicles of Narnia and I was THRILLED to find a version allegedly featuring color illustrations. This Nookbook does not feature color illustrations despite this claim in the synopsis: "Includes 19 new full-color plates by Pauline Baynes, the original illustrator of The Chronicles of Narnia." The traditional black-and-white illustrations are present, but no color plates. To Barnes and Noble: It is EXTREMELY frustrating to purchase a non-refundable product only to discover after the fact the product is not what was advertised. Please stop misleading ebook shoppers with inaccurate information.

I just finished reading this book and did so as the second book in the series. I only later found out that The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was actually published first and that many fans recommended reading them in the order in which they were published. This would be something to consider as you decide which book to begin with. Not only is this an enjoyable read for children, as I have been reading these aloud to mine, but it is enjoyable for adults. The language and the way C.S. Lewis writes is very accessible and feels like you entering his world from the first few sentences. My children’s interest has not waned as it has with other kids books. Another attractive aspect of these books is the underlying Christian themes. They help one understand some significant events in the Bible as well as access the teachings of Jesus in a unique way that makes kids think. Due to the accessibility of the writing and the creative way teachings of the Bible have been woven in, I have found myself becoming interested in who C.S. Lewis was as a man as well as reading his other works. I would highly recommend these wonderful books written by such an interesting man.

Out of the City and into the country to avid the bombings, the four siblings; Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, find their way through a magical wardrobe into the mystical world of Narnia. They meet the white witch, the evil ruler of Narnia and through bribery of Turkish delight wins over the heart of Edmund. They work with other mystical creatures to help bring about the downfall of the White Witch. Although the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is thought of as a children’s book, it has the magic and heart-warming story to attract people of all ages. C.S. Lewis once said "...a book worth reading ONLY in childhood is not worth reading even then." I read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe for the first time as an adult and loved it. I feel that this book fits exactly what C.S. Lewis was talking about. This book is worth reading over and over again, whether an adult or child. C.S. Lewis creates an exquisite world that helps one’s imagination to take them deep into Narnia where the reader feels they are part of the adventure. This story definitely shows the author’s deep Christian beliefs. It has a classic battle between good and evil and helps children see the importance of good leaders. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age who wants a good uplifting story.

i think that the series the chroniclas of narnia, is the best series out there. and the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe is the best book out of all of them. i also like other books for the series, such as prince caspian, and the voyage of the dawn treader. in conclusion, i think it doesnt matter if your under 10 years old, or over 50, you will enjoy this book very much.

When World War II strikes England. Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan Pevensie have to leave their mother and go to the country side of England where its more safer. Where they stay with Professor Digory Kirke. While playing Hide-and-seek, Lucy finds a wardobe and goes inside, she finds another world which has been enslaved by the evil White Witch. After, Lucy finds the place and a new friend, no one believes her. But, when Edmund find the world he meets the White Witch. The next day, all the children hid in the wardobe to find that Lucy was telling the truth. A new adventure starts. This classic i love because the author made Aslan (the lion) like Jesus. Also, the professor is Digory from the first book, all grown up. Ages 7- 100 This book can never gets old.

What a great book! It's about four kids, Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan, who when entering a wardrobe enyering a magical word. On a quest to save, their brother, Edmund, a lion named Aslan, and Narnia. I really like this book because it talks about how they try to figure out who or what to save first or how to save every thing at tha same time and whats more inportant to them because they have to save aslan, their brother, narnia, kill the white witch, and get home. Thank you for reading my reveiw. :)
